MUSCLE International Workshop on Computational Intelligence for Multimedia Understanding

The ERCIM MUSCLE Working Group organises the International Workshop on Computational Intelligence for Multimedia Understanding in Pisa, Italy, 13-15 December 2011. The workshop is co-sponsored by CNR Italy and INRIA, France.

The purpose of the woriship is to provide an international forum to present and discuss current trends and future directions in computational intelligence for multimedia understanding. The workshop also aims at fostering the creation of a permanent network of scientists and practitioners for an easy and immediate access to people, data and ideas. The scientific program, organized in a single-session format, consists of invited lectures, contributed talks, and poster presentations.

Call for Papers
The oganisers are looking for original and high-quality submissions addressing multimedia processing and understanding methodologies, ranging from statistical, neural, evolutionary methods to mixed reality and multisensor interaction, as well as a variety of applications, in the areas of public services, transport/mobility, aids to impaired people, process control and diagnosis, remote sensing, and beyond. Active participation of graduate students is strongly encouraged. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to: multisensor system, multimodal analysis, crossmodal data analysis and clustering, mixed-reality applications, activity and object detection and recognition, text and speech recognition, multimedia labeling, semantic annotation, and metadata, multimodal indexing and searching in very large data-bases, case studies.

Paper submission deadline is 15 July.

Invited Speakers:
Bulent Sankur, Bogazici University, Turkey and Sanni Siltanen, VTT, Finland
